80: The Complexity and the Humanity with Trent Walton

August 26, 2014 at 6:45PM • 1 hour 12 minutes • Wiki Entry

Web projects have gotten very complex in the last few years, but the hardest part isn't the technology — it's the humanity. The success or failure of big projects is contingent on leadership, vision and planning. Trent Walton joins Jen Simmons to tell tales of working on the microsoft.com homepage and other big projects — sharing what can go right and what can go wrong. He also talks about reviving the original 1994 version of microsoft.com, and the importance of archiving the web.
